Shiraz is the New World name of a grape originally from France: Syrah. Shiraz is a very versatile grape, and as such, can be found all over the world, in places like Australia, South Africa, and the western United States. Shiraz makes a deeply colored wine, famous for its spice, and full of aromas like violets, dark berries, espresso, and black pepper. Shiraz is both used as a single variety, and in blends.
